If you are concerned that you may have symptoms of Covid-19 please do not come to the practice. Please stay at home and follow https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19 General information can be found at - https://www.gwh.nhs.uk/
In line with national guidance we have suspended the online booking of appointments. Appointments can now only be made by telephone.
Stay at home for ten days if you have either:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 10 days from the day the first person got symptoms.
You don't need a Med3 ("sick note") from the surgery, instead you can download an isolation note online.
When to use 111
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Ways to avoid coming into the surgery
You can order prescriptions via Patient Access. Please sign up for the website or the app. This will also be expanded to allow other online services from the practice in the near future.
You can also use the NHS app to order repeat prescriptions. This is available for both iOS and Android devices.
Covid - 19 tests
Any patients requiring information about testing please go the government website: https://www.gov.uk/apply-coronavirus-test. Patients who do not have access to or cannot use the internet can call a dedicated phone line, which can be used to order a test if no other options are available. The Coronavirus Testing Call Centre can be contacted on 119. Around 98% of all Coronavirus test results are sent automatically to the individual within four days but for any that aren’t, the Call Centre can help individuals to follow up on their results. Patients do not use NHS 111, as the service is not able to do this for them.
